What Escom has to say about hot water heating:

Solar Water Heating Programme

What is the programme about?

The government has set a target for renewable energy to contribute 10 000 giga watt hours (GWh) of final energy consumption by 2013. Solar water heating could contribute up to 23% towards this target.

Solar power is one of the most effective renewable energy sources available. By implementing it in water heating, we can target one of the most power-intensive household activities for maximum power saving effect.

To actively encourage and promote the widespread implementation of solar water heating, Eskom has rolled out a large-scale solar water heating programme. This programme will assist you when buying an SABS tested solar water heater to replace your conventional geyser.

In addition to the rebate that you will receive upon installation of solar water heating, many insurance companies are now allowing you to put your claim value towards a solar system or are offering solar water heaters as replacement in the event of a burst geyser.

 

Make the switch to energy efficient hot water technologies and save...

An electrical element geyser for upon to 40% of the average household's energy costs.

A high-pressure solar water heating system can reduce your electricity bill by up to 24% whilst a heat pump is three times more energy efficient than an electrical element geyser.

Important note:

Renewable energy is a key focus area for government, having set a target of 1 million solar water heating systems to be installed across South Africa by March 2015
